Slackware gcc multilib packages rebuilt

Pat Volkerding rebuilt the gcc 4.5.1 packages for Slackware-current, adding support for LTO (Link Time Optimization). Apparently that feature was requested a lot.

Consequently I have rebuilt my multilib versions of the gcc-4.5.1 packages for Slackware64-current; get them at (mirror site:

  2. @Nick –

    No need to update any compat 32 packages. Those are unrelated to the multilib gcc and glibc packages I build. If The original 32-bit Slackware package would get an update, that would be the moment to run convertpkg-compat32.


  3. Hi,
    I’m having trouble using this gcc package for compiling the kernel. The make commando returns:

    # make menuconfig

    HOSTCC scripts/kconfig/conf.o
    /usr/libexec/gcc/x86_64-slackware-linux/4.5.1/cc1: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    make[1]: *** [scripts/kconfig/conf.o] Error 1
    make: *** [menuconfig] Error 2

    Probable forgot to include this new file into the packages. Running original 4.5.1 packages works fine.

    And thx for keeping these multilib packages.

    You have to follow the slackware-current changelog closely if you want to use my stuff:

    Mon Oct 18 20:34:23 UTC 2010
    l/libelf-0.8.13-x86_64-1.txz: Added.
    This is needed to enable LTO support in GCC.

    Install the new package and you’ll be fine.
